Finger Print Recognition Fails
When I first logged in and set up Finger Print Recognition the app worked fine for me and would have received 4 stars.
One day later and I can’t log in at all as after the standard Apple ‘log in with your fingerprint’ screen all that happens is the screen displays “Something went wrong” and ‘retry’ and no amount of retries will get me past that screen.
My phone is an SE2 running IOS 13.5.1 which shouldn’t be a problem for new software.
1 Week later ....... I decided to try to log on again (on the off chance) and everything worked fine. I normally turn my phone off at night so potentially the associated hard reset may have had an effect and I also delete all the cookies every couple of days so that may have had an effect also.
Either way the app seems to be working correctly now so gets a cautious four stars.
Developer Response ,
Welcome to the YBS savings app and thank you for your valuable feedback. We're thrilled you're now able to use the YBS app!
Not sure what the point is
Downloaded the app, and I agree, it’s quicker to log in than by using the website, but all the app does is allow you to see your balances and to transfer within internal accounts? No facility to transfer to external accounts, no facility to cancel or amend standing orders, no facility to make payments to anywhere, no facility to access other products. All the other banking apps I have allow me to do what I can do on the website mostly. Just not sure what the point of this app is apart from to show your balance and to transfer between internal accounts? Maybe it’s a work in progress and these features will be added, so will review my review in a few months to see if the app improves.
Updated review: transfer of money to external account is indeed available, so have altered my original rating. :)

Hi - thank you for leaving a review on the YBS savings app. The app does allow you to transfer to your external accounts and you can also set up and save payees for future payments. We're actively looking to make the YBS app better based on customer feedback on future functionality. Thanks again for taking time to review the app.
Room for improvement
Not a bad app, but just wondering why it won’t let me transfer to my other YBS accounts? I have one account myself and am named on each of my children’s accounts but for some reason am unable to transfer out of mine into theirs? Doesn’t make sense 🙁
Update: thanks for the response, and I’m glad that this feature has been added - HOWEVER, I’ve just tried to do a transfer (several times now) and it just keeps saying that something has gone wrong 😩
